Customer Reviews for Tanfoglio Witness 1911 BB Pistol Blowback

Brand: Cybergun

Type: BB Pistol
Manufacturer: Cybergun
Model: Tanfoglio Witness 1911
Materials: 99% all metal build
Weight: 907 g (2 pounds)
Barrel: 111 mm (4.38 inches), Brass, non-rifled
Power Source: 12 g CO2 x 1
Action:Semi-auto blowback, single action
Ammo Type: Steel BBs 4.5mm
Ammo Capacity: 18 rounds
FPS: 320


Trigger Pull: The trigger pull is what you would expect from a real 1911 automatic pistol, with single action. It is very light and short.


Accuracy: Surprisingly good! I got just under a two inch grouping from 20 feet away shooting 8 shots on a target in a free standing position, and I was only using one hand this time!


Build Quality: Excellent, with almost all metal construction, good weight and craftsmanship.


Realism: This is as close as you can come to the look, weight, feel, and action of the real 1911 in virtually every way! I'm not sure what more you could ask for? If you do want more then you are going to have to go out and pick yourself up a real 45 auto 1911!

Pros:

  • Extremely realistic airgun replica of an original Colt 1911 A1 styled 45 auto
  • All metal construction - good weight and solid feeling gun
  • Would make an excellent training gun as it functions just like the real steel 1911 45 handgun
  • Blowback action is very firm adding to the realism of shooting this weapon
  • Field strips just like the real 1911 45 auto
  • True 1911 Single action trigger, excellent pull, very smooth and light
  • Good accuracy, not too bad amount off shots for this style of gun about 3 good magazines
  • Working grip safety

Cons:

  • It goes through CO2 very fast
  • A bit hard to load up BBs
  • No adjustable sights
  • Finish may be hard to color match because it's not really black but rather a brownish black

Comments: I was very impressed with this Cybergun product, it looks great and functions just like the real steel in practically every way possible for an airgun replica. I got decent accuracy and very close to the claimed factory FPS and even a full 3 magazines worth of shots from one CO2, which is pretty good for a blowback airgun with this kind of kick to it. If you like the Classic Colt 1911 A1 style of pistol and if you are into airguns or are looking for a gun you can use when getting to the range then the Cybergun Tanfoglio Witness 1911 is exactly what you need.

Amazing

Love the feel of this 1911. Only 1 thing wrong is the accuracy it off by a inch from 20 feet away. Like the blow back feel and it field strip too.

Amazing

I was very impressed by the realism of this gun. Looks and feels like the real deal, fooled some of my mates with it. Shooting is very fun with a little kick in the wrist it keeps you entertained. Co2 heavy but worth every cartridge.

Solid Weapon

Ordered this gun about a week ago. When it came the parcel even had a nice feel to it. I opened it up and was amazed by the realism and detail of it. First time shooting with CO2, but I will say this was a great starter. The screw works seamlessly, CO2 fits snug, BBs shoot out beautifully. Nice smooth trigger pull and decent blowback action. Haven't field stripped it yet, but looking forward to it. This gun simply does not dissappoint.

Good gun

I have used this gun for around three months now, I recommend buying a gun blue pen (the birchwood casey presto gun blue pen works best) because it is all steel so it does scratch easily. Rarely jams, pretty good on CO2, and overall a good gun.

Great gun! As real as it can get!

Just got this gun and can't say anything bad about it. The Blowback and feel is very realistic. Accuracy seems a bit off at times but all in all, a great piece! Good feel, good grip and a lot of fun to shoot.

Good but not great for the long run

I had this gun for about 2 years before it started to act up. the plastic parts inside the top slide eventually wore down and would not chamber a BB, My magazine did not have any issues and i found the sights to be simple but accurate. If you want a 1911 replica and only plink now and then you should be happy with the this gun.

Excellent replica

I have a number of CO2 pistols and this is by far the most realistic, not just in looks but in operation and field stripping. On top of that, if you're ambitious and want to customize your pistol the finish can be stripped mirror polished and custom grips added to give you a one of a kind 1911 replica. Dealing with Replicaairguns was as usual, fast and hassle free.

amazing piece of hardware

Blowback is lots of fun, easy to load (second time around) This gun has a realistic weight and feel, and at times i thought I was holding the real steel. I couldn't wait until the warm weather, so at -5C I still got 3 full mags per CO2. I dropped the mag in the snow, blew it off and back to business with no problems. I thought the acccuracy was questionable, until the kids shot...purchasing extra mags is a must. Get off your wallet and buy this gun. You wont be disappointed!
